New Biodegradable Polymer for Bone Implants Promotes Tissue Regeneration

Scientists of the Tomsk Polytechnic University have created a polymer that can be used in regenerative medicine.

      Over time, it dissolves in the body and, under mechanical action, generates an electric charge, which stimulates the body cells and promotes the recovery.

      According to the developers, it is possible to use such a hybrid polymer as a material for bone implants to replace bone defects, repair nerves and as wound dressings. Siberian scientists managed to significantly improve the mechanical properties of the polymer in comparison with its analogues. Now the polymer is more elastic, which matters if it is used for wound dressings.
